Aotearoa Institute urgent application decision

26 October 2005

Aotearoa Institute urgent application decision

The Waitangi Tribunal has today agreed to inquire urgently into parts of a claim filed in September by Aotearoa Institute, parent body of Te Wananga o Aotearoa (TWOA).

The inquiry will concentrate on issues concerning the revised charter, student profile and future direction of TWOA. Key questions will include the role of the Crown and the claimants in determining the future direction of TWOA; the Treaty responsibilities of the Crown to the claimants; and the question of what a wananga is.

The Tribunal found it inappropriate to inquire into matters linked to or directly within the ambit of an Auditor-General’s report currently being prepared on TWOA.

It is anticipated that a three-day hearing will take place from 30 November to 2 December 2005.
